Football NSW is inviting suitably qualified coaches to apply for several coaching positions in its State Teams Representative Program for the upcoming FFA Girls National Youth Championships.
Football Federation Australia has decided that in 2018, Football NSW will be granted two spots in each age group and therefore two metropolitan squads of 16 (with a minimum of four shadow players per team) will participate at the Championships.
FNSW State Teams form an integral part of the National Player Pathway. Players selected will have the opportunity to compete at the FFA National Youth Championships (NYC) or the FFA National Training Centre (NTC) Challenge and be exposed to both the highest level of football available and the expertise of FNSW /FFA State and National selectors and coaches. From these tournaments, players will be identified for future selection into FNSW Elite Programs, National Training Camps, National Youth Teams, and W League Teams etc.
For coaches, this is a great opportunity to display an understanding of the National Curriculum and the Coaching Process consistent with Advanced Coach Education principles. The tournament environment helps coaches improve player management and planning skills with an unfamiliar group of players. As with the players, this is an excellent opportunity for your own development and future identification for further advanced positions in the elite coaching area.
The 2018 FFA Girls National Youth Championships will be held from Monday 16th July to Friday 20th July 2018 at Coffs Harbour.
